Cinderella is currently the top-selling movie on DVD in the Family, Adventure, and Fantasy categories. “On DVD Releases” reports the bestselling DVDs, as well as how to find them, ratings, and genres.
Christian Cinema’s top ten bestselling movies from its catalog are, in order, Beyond the Mask, Alone Yet Not Alone, Love Comes Softly (collection of 10 DVDs), Do You Believe?, Return to the Hiding Place, Different Drummers, Faith of our Fathers, Gallows Road, God’s Not Dead, and the War Room study guide. This catalogue provides valuable information for the movies in its catalog, including descriptions, recommendations, and ratings. For a little more than the cost of a movie ticket, viewers can own the good movies they have missed in theaters. Having them in your personal libraries is significant, since movie selections come and go on streaming services.
